My childhood Chief Chirpa (and a pencil topper).
I have attempted a restore with it's original staff, card and bubble, and the help of a toploader.

Thanks. I always liked it that he was blacked out on this card back; it gave the ewok figures a bit of mystique. I regret cutting out this name plate though. Also, the staff was originally taped to the bubble but the tape has now yellowed and is not reusable.

I totally understand that you regret cutting out the name plate, I would also regret it if it was me. Maybe you can replace the plate from a cut card or damaged card :D You can always glue the tape back on the bubble :wink:

My philosophy on these figures is to reassemble without modification, gluing or additional parts. There's something about knowing that all the bits were from the same original set.
